Ages 4^-8. Pictures and text work together beautifully to introduce facts about bird migration in this new addition to the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. Richly colored double-spread artwork shows birds and children in a common habitat before focusing on birds themselves, in nests and on the wing. The crisply delivered accompanying text, larded with specific examples, delves into some of the tantalizing mysteries that surround birds' twice-yearly pilgrimage. Several maps are used to give children a sense of distances traveled, and because so many different varieties of birds are shown, always clearly labeled, children can use the book as a sort of informal spotter's guide.
